Reviews

8.9 Busy Bees at Norwich Airport has a Review Score of 8.9 (8.931)

The Review Score of 8.9 (maximum of 10) for Busy Bees at Norwich Airport is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.6 out of 5 from 17 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Busy Bees at Norwich Airport in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.3 out of 5 from 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.618 for Busy Bees at Norwich Airport is calculated as follows: ( (129 Excellents x 5) + (72 Goods x 4) + (3 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 204 Ratings = 4.618

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.313 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Busy Bees at Norwich Airport is based on 7 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 22.4 positive Reviews (112 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 7 Reviews ÷ 22.4 Target = 0.313

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

We've been using Busy Bees for 2 years and it goes from strength to strength. The facilities are excellent - particularly the large garden - the staff are amazing. Quality of learning is excellent. Pre-school has 'Chatterboxes' and scrapbooks, which have helped my child come out of his shell, and they're a fun family activity to do. The chef makes great, varied food - much more than we'd manage at home.

My child has made lots of friendships and is well socialised. My child is quite shy, and I really value the effort and care that the staff take in encouraging him to use his voice and get involved in group activities.

My daughter had been her since she was 9 months old and she has loved every minute of it! The staff are welcoming and offer settling in sessions which are a great way for you to get to know your child's key worker and also to settle those parental nerves!
They make sure (weather depending) that the children go outside and she is always doing lots of activities!! She's so chatty when I pick her up!!
They are also very accommodating to my daughters allergies.
So really an all round fab nursery! Staff and management are amazing!

Since joining Busy Bees Norwich Airport, my daughter has developed in so many ways. She is growing into a strong and independent, free thinking child and has been able to build stronger relationships around her.
My daughter has had a very happy and positive experience and the staff are very loving and caring. The nursery and preschool itself is a very bright and fun environment and the staff is supportive not only of your child but also to yourselves as parents.

My little boy attended Busy Bees at Norwich Airport for 4 years and was very happy there. The staff were warm and friendly and the nursery has great facilities, a lovely garden and a fantastic onsite chef. I felt confident that my child was well cared for and had fun-filled day when he was there.

My son has attended Busy Bees Norwich Airport since he was age one, now nearly four. He has really enjoyed his time there and has always been very happy and has made some lovely friends. It has given him so much confidence when playing with other children which is one of the many reasons we put him in the nursery so young. The staff are friendly and helpful and I would have no hesitation in recommending the nursery to friends and family.

My 2 children have been attending the nursery now for 15 months. They both really enjoy attending and look forward to going. I would mainly put this down to the staff, they are all an absolute asset to the place. Both children come home and talk about all the things they have done during the day and who they have played with, excited to share their experience.

During the last few weeks, I would like to say how the staff have excelled themselves. The nursery is about to finish a refurbishment, which it was needing. It is looking absolutely lovely after it's big, freshen up. There has been lots of work going on to improve the facilities however I need to say the disruption caused by the refurbishment has been absolutely minimal and this is because the staff are so organised and are constantly one step ahead.

I would highly recommend the nursery and the facilities it has to offer, I feel at ease going to work knowing my little ones are cared for so well.

From a very happy mummy :)

I have both my 3.5-year-old and 1 year older at this nursery.
My oldest has been there since he was 1 and although it was hard putting children in a nursery, I couldn't be happier and would not change it now if I had to. My son loves being there and at just 3.5 is very grown up, was potty trained just over 2, speaks very well for his age, has learnt new things every week including the alphabet at the moment.
The home cooked food is lovely, he regularly has extra helpings and he enjoys the garden playtime and has made some great friends.
My youngest has just started but is getting on well there and has very quickly settled in.
Both my children have allergies which the nursery have been very helpful with and are very flexible around them.
Would definitely recommend the nursery and very friendly helpful staff.

My son absolutely loved nursery. We only left due to our personal circumstances but moved to another Busy Bees as the airport one was so excellent and we wanted to stick with the company. The nursery staff are all so lovely and caring, and the management is brilliant.

My son is very happy and content in the nursery, he seems confident with lots of the staff and has made lots of friends.
Staff are friendly and know him and the other children well. He has moved from babies room through to the preschool and staff have supported him with the transitions.

My daughter has been attending this nursery since September 2014. I have always been impressed by the care offered at the nursery. My daughter required an inhaler and medication for a time which the staff managed brilliantly.

I am very happy sending my daughter to Busy Bees. I think the activities are interesting and the staff are very professional. The food is of a very high standard and I am impressed at the choice and the care they take as she is vegetarian. I think they are very positive towards valuing everyone and I like the fact that the displays are very inclusive. I was very impressed when my daughter started speaking to me in French!!! I really like the outdoor space as it gives them opportunities to be creative and independent.

My daughter loves coming to Busy Bees Norwich Airport and I am really happy with the service it provides. She has thrived in a kind, friendly environment and the wide range of activities especially 'Wake and Shake' and the role play areas have seen her interest in the world grow. As a busy mum, I find the hours work well and I really like that I can book extra sessions even at short notice when an emergency comes up at work. I think the team is well lead by the manager, who is very aware of developments and initiatives in early education and I am impressed that we are always kept informed and invited to support our children eg. maths.

My child has always been well cared for and the staff at the nursery are brilliant. Leaving your child at the nursery is never easy, what with the mummy guilt, but the staff have always been helpful, have listened and are supportive. There have been regular parents evenings, with advice on how to help my child progress, and the menu is varied, getting my child to eat things that perhaps they wouldn't at home. The opening hours are very good. The nursery also offers French in PreSchool which is fantastic and has gone down very well!
